How to Subscribe to Informatica Cloud Express Data Sync

Version 1

    Here are 6 steps to getting started with Informatica Cloud Express, which is an upgrade to Informatica's extremely popular Data Loader for Salesforce.


    If you already have an Informatica Cloud 30-day trial account or Data Loader account, scroll down to Step 4.


    1) Get started with an Informatica Cloud 30 day trial. You'll actually have access to all of the available cloud data integration services - synchronization, replication, data quality assessment, etc. If your requirements are only to integrate Salesforce with a database or file (not additional end-points) and you don't need to take advantage of look-ups, multi-object task flow, null value support and other features then be sure to select the Data Syncrhonization Service and get started building tasks. (See our Editions overview to understand what's included in Informatica Cloud Express vs. the Data Loader, Basic, Standard and Enterprise.)


    2) Download and install the Informatica Cloud Secure Agent. If you've already started creating Data Loader tasks you're all set, but just in case, be sure to determine where your agent will run. Here is a little more information about Informatica Cloud's architecture and here's an overview of Informatica Cloud security.


    3) Create a Data Synchronization task. As mentioned above, Informatica Cloud Express is only available for Data Synchronization tasks. It is a pay-per-use billing model. More details on the tiered pricing model are available here. For more details, be sure to read the FAQ.


    4) Click BUY NOW! and Choose Informatica Cloud Express. The susbcribe button is on the right side of screen when you're on the Informatica Cloud Home page.


    5) Now Select Buy Now in the Informatica Cloud Express section. Here you'll be presented with the different editions that are available to you and a summary of what's included in each.


    6) Add your credit card details, review the terms of the agreement and click Buy Now. On this screen you'll also see a summary of the 3 different pricing tiers on the right hand side when you click on each option and some of the general questions about the subscription model. More information is also available in the FAQ.
